Friday Cheat Day

My week has been hijacked by the need to produce more craft products for a second sale.

That sounds like I churn out projects by the hundreds, doesn't it?

That would be a misrepresentation of how many things I've made. However, all my available free time has been taken up.

Hence, a LOLCAT post. It's fun to do and requires no thinking.

Most people need no introduction to LOLCATS. For anyone who does, all the following images come from icanhas.cheezburger.com. The content is submitted by the site's readers, and includes both pictures and videos; there are various sections, including my favourite, cats. Readers can then caption the photos and vote on best images. For more information, see wikipedia's entry HERE.

This is my escape. This is my chocolate. This is my romance novel. This is my mindless TV. In other words, this requires less than one brain cell to take in, and it makes me forget everything else for awhile.

So, with all the apologies that admission requires of me, and with the additional cringe-inducing confession that I looked through more than 100 pages of images (7 per page) in my search for the best of the best FOR YOU MY READERS, here is Curated Collection #1 (10 photos long) for anyone who is still reading (please note I am poking fun at the word curated, as it seems to be in line to become one of the most overused words of the year. It is a perfectly good word in the right context but the uses I've seen it put to have sometimes made me rest my head on the desk and cry real tears):










































Hope you had at least one LOL.

And I have no idea how that dog got in there, but that's okay - he's adorable.

Until Monday, keep your happy face ready to go.

Thank you, icanhascheezburger, for your contribution to this post and to my life. When my kids were teenagers, this website was a place we could laugh together at length. Anything with that kind of power is not to be taken too lightly.

    I hope your crafting and sales both go supremely well.

    1. Thank you, EC. It's not a money maker, it's just something I have fun with and hope to get some money back on my supplies.

    1. I wouldn't mind having a table like that. Keep an eye on what the furry ones are up to under there, you know.

  4. I have always been a LOLCAT fan, but now I find that I like living with a real, live, cat even better...

    1. Sure - I do a number of unrelated things, but all under these principles: I like to use pre-owned or pre-used materials where possible, make useful items (as opposed to what is known in some circles as "dustcatchers"), make them sturdy, and have fun doing it. Actual items I've made include draft blockers, zippered pouches, purses/bags from skirts or the torso part of jeans, Christmas tree ornaments and jewellery using buttons. For examples of the last two, check these:

      These are not my items, just similar ones. I keep forgetting to take pictures of my stuff!

      Do you like crafts or do them yourself?

  7. I could spend my entire workday looking at pictures and videos of animals.

  8. There is nothing like a good cat meme website to make you forget your troubles. Or to do list. Whichever.

    1. Both, even. I like the "fail" memes as well, from time to time :)
